The annual extravaganza, Swire Symphony Under The Stars, returns to the Central Harbourfront! The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by conductor Wilson Ng and our favourite host Harry Gor Gor, presents an exuberant programme of dazzling dance music. Four HK Phil musicians will perform as soloists – Andrew Ling (Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango), and Christopher Moyse, Douglas Waterston and Robert Smith (Anderson’s Bugler’s Holiday).

What’s more this year, the HK Phil is delighted to co-present the live screening debut with the West Kowloon Cultural District in the Art Park, where audiences can enjoy a livestreamed relay on the opposite side of the harbour. For details, please visit West Kowloon Cultural District website.


To share this enthralling evening beyond the Harbourfront, this outdoor concert will be livestreamed on the HK Phil, West Kowloon, and West Kowloon Art Park Facebook pages, HK Phil website and YouTube channels. The orchestra invites music lovers around the world to this mega party of classical dance music under the magnificent night sky – complete with fireworks – with Hong Kong’s iconic skyline as the backdrop.


Concert lasts around 80 minutes, with no intermission.


In view of official guidelines and social distancing measures under the pandemic, the live performance in the Central Harbourfront is set to have assigned seats of a maximum of four persons per unit. No eating and drinking is allowed, and the audiences should wear masks throughout the event. Thank you for your cooperation.


Change of Conductor & Programme

Given the current quarantine requirements related to the global pandemic and his other international commitments, conductor Jaap van Zweden will unfortunately not be able to conduct the “Swire Symphony Under The Stars” concert at the Central Harbourfront on 13 November 2021, 7:30pm. Instead Wilson Ng will conduct this performance in a slightly modified programme as listed above.
